Healthy Eating

Meals are well balanced and nutritious

We offer breakfast, lunch, tea and snacks. Water and milk are provided for all children throughout the day.

We go to great lengths to prepare healthy, fresh, nutritious, balanced menus which give children variety: energy foods, foods for growth, tasty foods & foods to encourage independence of eating.

Plenty of fresh fruits & vegetables

Meals are cooked daily on the premises by our resident cook using wherever possible fresh locally sourced ingredients.

Our menu is designed to encourage healthy eating, with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables.

Healthy eating is not just about what we put on the plate. It is about educating the children and giving them the knowledge and independence to make healthy choices that will leave them in good stead for the future.

  • Snacks

    Little and often

    Parents rightly want their children to be eating healthy, nutritional food. Here at Woodpeckers we do just that.

    Breakfast, morning snack, lunch, afternoon snack and tea meals – cover the fact that children need to eat little and often as they have high energy requirements but small stomachs.
